Westminster City Council's existing on-street residential cycle parking hangars are a roaring success. Every cycle hangar is full and has a waiting list to rent one of its six secure cycle parking spaces at a cost of £72/year.
There was recently a public consultation on plans for 29 more cycle hangars.
Many Westminster residents live in small flats with little space to park a bike. Cycle hangars enable more residents to travel by this zero-emission, active travel mode.
Residents in the West End have been overlooked until now. The first cycle hangars are proposed in Chiltern Street W1U, Dean Street W1D, Golden Square W1F, Tavistock Street WC2E and Greycoat Lane SW1P.
Residents in St John's Wood NW8 also missed out in the previous round. The first cycle hangars are proposed in Blenheim Terrace, Mackennal Street, Marlborough Place and Wellington Place.
